Palm Harbor Business Owners Looking For A Smooth Water Restoration Process

Running a yoga studio in Palm Harbor can be very satisfying. Yoga is an exciting exercise that helps local residents take time out of their busy lives and enjoy some me-time. To keep your yoga studio thriving, it is a good idea to prepare ahead for potential disasters.

There are many reasons you might need water restoration in your Palm Harbor yoga studio:

  • Heavy winds and rain broke a window and let water in
  • Broken or overflowing guttering caused water to seep under the studio door
  • A broken pipe or faucet soaked the floor or caused a small flood in the bathroom
  • The kitchen dishwasher broke and flooded the floor

Unfortunately, yoga studios often have lots of soft furnishings, such as yoga mats and foam blocks, that are susceptible to water damage. Water can also warp wooden fittings such as desks and cabinets. It can also pool across the floor, and soak into essential papers such as customer records or staff training manuals.

Why is preparation key to handling a disaster?

If you have a disaster in your business, time is of the essence. The risks of leaving water damage untreated include:

  • Water can soak further into rugs and yoga mats.
  • Water might spread to damage baseboards, drywall, wallpaper, and drapes
  • The risk of microbial growth gets more significant with every passing hour

We suggest calling us as soon as you spot the need for water damage restoration. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and our teams are waiting to clean and restore your business.

What Can SERVPRO Do If I Need Water Restoration?

We can help with every aspect of water restoration. Our process includes:

  • An assessment so we can devise the best remediation plan and discuss it with you
  • Pumping out water using handheld wands, free-standing pumps, and truck-mounted pumps
  • Remedying water damage using wet and dry cleaning, spot cleaning, and fogging
  • Drying out your studio with air movers and dehumidifiers
  • Deodorizing with air scrubbers and odor-controlling pellets, so your premises smell fresh again

We can also coordinate with insurers on your behalf.

Is Any Job Too Small?

No – we are here to help with any incident, big or small. Even a tiny leak can cause you to have to shut your studio. Every day your studio is closed is a day you cannot earn money from it. SERVPRO of Dunedin / Palm Harbor South understands that you need to get your business up and running again as soon as possible. That is why we designed the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan (ERP).

What is an Emergency READY Profile Plan?

A ready profile is an action plan you can put into place as soon as an incident occurs. An ERP shaves valuable time off the restoration process because it allows you to act quickly. 

To get started download the app here: https://ready.SERVPRO.com/home/mobileapp. You will need to log vital information, such as:

  • Water shut-off valve location
  • Assembly points for employee and customer safety
  • Priority contact information
  • insurance details

Having all the right information on hand means you do not have to search for it when a disaster is progressing and you may be stressed.

Your profile also includes a concise document with only the most critical information, so your staff does not have to search for essential details in the middle of a crisis. You will also draw up a plan for getting your business running again.

How Does the ERP Work?

When you need water restoration, you can launch the app and contact us in just a few clicks. You can submit the first notice of loss, or call us directly from within the app. Your ERP will automatically populate much of the information, saving you valuable time. The app even comes with mitigation tips you can follow while you wait for us to arrive, further hastening the process and helping your business recover faster.

Who Should I Share My Plan With?

We recommend sharing your plan with all key decision-makers in your business and staff members who might be on-site in the event of water damage. The plan gives your staff steps to follow and makes it easier for them to act.

You must email your ERP to SERVPRO of Dunedin/Palm Harbor South, so we have all the studio information. We hope you will not need us, but we should have the data to hand if you do.

If you are worried about water damage restoration, do not hesitate to get in touch. We will take care of every aspect and leave your business Certified: SERVPRO Clean.
